PLATE CLVI
THE TERMINAL MORAINE OF CHTLDS GLACIER
The white cliff of the glacier (g, g) shows on the extreme right. The remnants of the crescentic moraine (m, m, m) consist of (1) the great hill in the foreground, (2) die light-colored hill near the lake, (3) dark-colored hills rising through the smooth valley train of outwash gravels and (4) a light-colored hill, on the right, south, of the glacier. This outwash was partly deposited by Copper Biver, whose present course (r, r, r) now goes inside the crescentic terminal moraine of the former bulb of Childs Glacier, and partly by streams from Miles Glacier at a period of former expansion. In the distance is the Copper Biver delta. Photograph by Caleb Corser, October 24, 1908.
